Ken Mehlman Attends $1M Giuliani Fundraiser
Republican Party chair Ken Mehlman attended tonight's big Solutions America shindig in midtown tonight. Before you get too excited, Hotline On Call notes this is a courtesy he is apparently extending to all WH'08ers.
On Call provides plenty of additional flavor. 175 people were expected to attend the fundraiser, which is expected to do $1 million. (Were you one of the 175? E-mail rudy blogger at g mail dot com with your account of tonight's happenings. Anonymity guaranteed.) Tomorrow, Solutions America will cut its next round of checks to 2006 candidates, for a total of $100,000. Also in attendance were key Congressional candidates benefiting from Hizzoner's munificence, including Michelle Bachmann (MN-06), Jeff Lamberti (IA-03), David McSweeney (IL-08), and Ralph Norman (SC-05).
Marc Ambinder also spells out the Mayor's next round of political travel:
Next month, Giuliani plans a three-day campaign marathon across the country, starting with a fundraiser for Sen. Mike DeWine (R-OH). The trip will take him to AR to campaign for Asa Hutchinson's gov campaign, to PA, where'll he return to help Sen. Rick Santorum (R), and to MD, where he'll assist Gov. Bob Ehrlich. Between now and then, Giuliani has several campaign stops planned -- he's in TX later this week for TX 17 GOP nominee Van Taylor and the Dallas Co. GOP. He'll also host two Get Motivated seminars, including one tomorrow in Oklahoma City.And Rudy's getting a Web site, but no blog. We'll be more than happy to corner that market.
